Inspired by the works of Nakashima, Krenov and Maloof this piece is a tour d’force of sculptural beauty. The motif of the maritime leviathan conjures up images of Ahab, and hence the woodworkers obsession with finding order in the chaos of the unruly, imperfect material we have chosen to work with.

At least I think that’s what I was thinking when I banged it out in woodshop over twenty five years ago :)

Ya know, if you flip that 180 degrees and put legs on it – it could be a goose. Excellent job! And multifunctional!
